The postulates of special relativity and the Lorentz ether theory could easily be tested by measuring the resonance frequency of a microwave resonator as it strongly depends on the phase velocities of the waves travelling back and forth. If, for example, a signal is injected into a shorted transmission line a standing wave voltage distribution is formed by the two waves travelling at phase velocities c-u and c+u, with u being the absolute velocity of our solar system in the direction of LEO, i.e., u = 390km/s. The wavelength ? of the standing wave is reduced by the well known factor (1-u2/c2). However, the decrease of ? for u = 390km/s is very small, so that probing the wavelength will not likely yield a meaningful value for the absolute velocity u. A more successful method might be to connect the resonator to an active element such as a bipolar transistor and build a solid state oscillator. The frequency of operation can easily be calculated and it will be shown that it does neither depend on the square root of (1-u2/c2) as special relativity predicts due to "time dilation" nor on (1-u2/c2) as the Lorentz Ether Theory would predict. The calculation rather shows that all circuit elements will contribute to some other dependence which can be calculated numerically or determined experimentally. Thus a series of experiments with different solid state oscillator circuits could be performed in order to measure the actual ticking rate of clocks (=oscillators) at rest or in motion relative to the ether, to the cosmic microwave background (Smoot's New Aether) or relative to whatever. When two different oscillator circuits would be operated in a common laboratory on earth during a 12 hours period of time (half a revolution of the earth) and different frequency readings would be observed after they had initially been tuned to the same frequency this would indicate that the Lorentz Ether Theory is correct whereas equal frequency readings would indicate that special relativity is applicable. Experimental results obtained with several different oscillators and theoretical aspects of this method will be discussed at the Conference.
